An overnight rescue effort in New York brought only additional sadness as crews searched the rubble of what used to be two apartment buildings in Harlem.

Firefighters worked throughout the night, with temperatures plummeting, trying to locate any survivors from the apparent gas explosion. They found none.

Seven people have now been found dead. One victim pulled from the debris was so badly burned, their identity has yet to be confirmed.

To make matters worse, five additional people are still unaccounted for.

The search for those individuals continues today. Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to update the city and the world on the latest information later this morning.

Such a tragedy.

Stay tuned for more details.

Oh no!

Firefighters are on the scene at a building collapse in New York City.

A six-story building on 116th Street in East Harlem, between Madison and Park, has reportedly partially collapsed in a three-alarm fire.

Witnesses are reporting a large explosion that blew out the windows as the street became engulfed in smoke.

No official word yet on the cause of the fire, but we do know that the building housed a Spanish Christian Church and piano repair shop. Right now the FDNY is still working on putting out the blaze, with 168 members from 39 units responding.

So far only minor injuries reported; for now we pray that holds.
